‘Heartbreaking’, ‘Gutted’ – Some Fans React After Arsenal Star Suffers Serious Injury

By on November 8, 2018

Some Arsenal fans have been reacting on social media after Danny Welbeck suffered what looked to be a serious injury during our Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon this evening.

Unai Emery made plenty of changes from the side that drew with Liverpool on Saturday evening with Welbeck among those recalled as the England international replaced Alexandre Lacazette up front against the Portuguese giants tonight.

Welbeck was looking lively early on and almost opened the scoring when he latched on to a Stephan Lichtsteiner cross but his effort was cleared off the line by a Sporting Lisbon defender.

However, Welbeck’s night was over soon after as the striker went down in a heap after challenging for a header midway through the first half and he immediately called for the Arsenal medical team.

It was clear the forward was in considerable pain with his Arsenal team mates looking on in shock as Welbeck was given oxygen as the physios put his right ankle into a splint before carrying him off on a stretcher in the 30th minute to be replaced by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Understandably, fans have been expressing their disappointment that Welbeck appears to have suffered yet another serious injury as his career at Arsenal has been blighted by a number of injury problems since he joined from Manchester United.

Supporters have taken to social media to say how ‘heartbreaking’ it is while TV presenter and lifelong Arsenal fan Piers Morgan was among those to say how ‘gutted’ they are for Welbeck.

Fans have also been speculating that we won’t see Welbeck play again this season. We’ll have to wait for updates from Unai Emery after the game but let’s pray it’s not as serious as it seemed on TV.
